I've got a Macbook Pro with Mavericks and I noticed that I'm able to use the system preferences under Line6 Audio - Midi Devices to set the inputs and recording options without running Gearbox.
Will I still get the benefit of ToneDirect Monitoring by listening through the 'Phones' jack without Gearbox running? Or do I need Gearbox to run? Normally I just record everything unprocessed.
I assume if I did want to hear the processed sound I'd need Gearbox.
